If You Could Buy Only One Game This Fall...

For some, this is a surprisingly easy question. For others, they'll probably have to think about it for a while.

As usual, the autumn is full of promising titles and most consumers have to create a priority list. Maybe you can only buy three or four or maybe things aren't going so great, and you can really afford only one. So let's take the latter unfortunate example for the subject of tonight's editorial: If you could only purchase one game between now and Christmas, what would it be?

This is actually pretty easy for me; it's Assassin's Creed III, no two ways about it. Not only do I fully expect it to become 2012's Game of the Year, but it also gives you a ton of bang for your buck; there's almost no chance I spend less than 35 hours with it. But also on that list are games like Dishonored (set to launch on Tuesday), for which I have extremely high hopes, and some downloadable titles such as Joe Danger 2: The Movie and The Unfinished Swan. Resident Evil 6 had been a consideration but...still not sure what happened there.

So what about you? If you're a multiplayer fanatic, Call of Duty: Black Ops II is probably a given. Then again, maybe it's Halo 4 or Medal of Honor: Warfighter; I imagine both are top priorities for the shooter fans. You also can't forget Need for Speed: Most Wanted, which you may as well call "Burnout Paradise 2." That one should be awesome, too, and talk about bang for your buck... Fighting followers may already have their game (Tekken Tag Tournament 2 or Dead or Alive 5), but we can't forget about PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royale, can we?

DOA5 would be the one, which I have access to (you never really OWN it when it's digital =p )

Halo 4 is the only other one I'd contemplate getting before the year's end... and not for it's multi-play ;)
EVerything else are rentals or deal busters. Heck, Darksiders 2 is already $25 on Steam right now. I'll hold out for $15, or less on that one =p THQ published games drop faster than any it would seem these days.
Oh, I sorta want KZ HD. may be an impulse buy =p

As eager as I am to get my hands on 'Assassin's Creed III', were I allowed only one game, I would have to go with 'Hitman: Absolution.' I've been waiting for a sequel to 'Blood Money' since before the first 'Assassin's Creed', so there's just no competition for me. Fortunately, I'm getting them both.

AC 3. But I gotta be honest, all my most anticipated games slipped until q1 2013 or later, so I'm most interested in catching up on vita (expecting the ac liberation bundle for my bday) playing a handful of blockbusters like ac3 and halo 4, and replaying old favorites this season. Symphony of the night, mgs and maybe some ff 7 via psn. Oh, and still working through my very first play through of ff6 on the wii! Remarkably fun for such an old game.

Yeah! I've watched the video review of RE6(which is a bad idea) in Gamespot and it looks like a lot of fun despite of the negativity.

As for AC3, it bothers me for how simple the combat is compared to Revelations. It looks like the first AC combat with gun and a bow.

I myself would get AC3, hands down. However, I'd get my younger brother to buy Sleeping Dogs for me and my younger-younger brother to get me assorted PSN Pre-paid and XBL MP Points cards so I can then accrue as much money/points as I can to get any DLC I want to get over the next while. Muahahahha

I simply want all this because my birthday is on the 30th :P

Honestly I buy all my games when they price drop, but the game coming out this fall that I want most is NFS Most Wanted.

If it's as good as the last most wanted I'll spend hundreds of hours antagonizing cops and seeing how long I can evade their grasp.

I'm enjoying RE6 so much I could answer with that. It's a fantastic game. Leon's campaign so far, aside from being a little tedious is a joy to play, especially with a friend.

But I'd really honestly I'd have a tough choice between Borderlands 2 and AC3.

That's a tough choice though, because I really feel like I'd want a mp game to play with my friends. But that's the sacrifice I guess.

So you are playing RE6 in coop, and that is a ball? Damn I get torn now, I'd written off this game but since I know we share a lot when it comes to gaming I now get unsure here.
Mind if I do a mini-interview with you? :)

Do you mainly play RE6 alone or in coop?

Did you play RE5 in coop, and if so, how would you rate that experience?

Saturday, October 06, 2012 @ 8:02:45 AM

*far* superior? Cause I really liked the coop in RE5. It had some clever parts where you truly had to cooperate, like when one defended while the other advanced, one held the light while the other fighted, stuff like that is what made RE5 so good in coop.

Well, right now on top of the coop list is Borderlands 2 and no other coop will get between me and that game until it is done. But after that it sounds like RE6 should be picked up from the bargain bin after all. And I never thought I would.

RE6 co op is beyond better than RE5. There's Some similarities but it's a much better experience.

As in RE5 as you explained there was total cooperation needed. Again Same thing in 6 but more thought out, and meanwhile you feel helpless without your partner when any type of separation occurs(at least in Leons campaign, havnt played the others yet). What I mean by helpless is, it's kinda freaky runnin round by yourself knowing your help is close but unable to assist you. It brings another aspect of survival - horror/drama to the table. It's a great experience. Knowing you like co-op, absolutely recommend it. 100%! The fact you liked RE5 and it's co-op, tells me you really enjoy RE6.

Sorry ignored your mini interview, haha. To answer your questions:

I bought RE6 to play co-op with my buddy who I played RE5 with. The game alone is great but the co-op experience makes it better for me.

Did you play RE5 in coop, and if so, how would you rate that experience?

I played RE5 exclusively co-op. I'd rate it one of the better co-op experiences aside from Borderlands and now RE6 of course! ;)

resident evil 6 is number one. A second would be far cry 3. Nothing else catches my interest. I've already poured in more hours on re6 than i ever did with skyrim and im still playing it. Haven't even completed all campaigns yet. I can honestly say jake's campaign (though not completed yet) is my favorite. He's a cool character and the melee is so fun to use. After im done clearing the story im planning on going back and doing a melee only run. The same for chris but with his battle knife.

SPOILER it would be impossible to do a knife run with leon. Poor guys campaign is so difficult but so epic at the same time. His campaign is riddled with the original RE style. I felt like i was re-playing re2 and re4.

I agree!! I thought Leon's campign was spectactular!! I have not had that much fun with a game in years. Huge adreniline rush from Leon's campign...sort of like a wicked a$$ roller coaster ride. When I finally finished the suprisingly long campign I just wanted to turn around and do it again! There are more survival horror elements in Leon's campign than the entire RE5 game. Always felt a little on edge in Leon's campign...poor Leon indeed!! He had everything including the kitchen sink thrown at him but seems to handle it with style. Oh, and I agree with you about it feeling like playing RE2 and especially RE4 again and that's a good thing.

If i had to chose just one it would have to be WWE' 13 over Assassins Creed 3. Im kinda burnt out on the Assassins Creed series. I mean look at WWE' 13 attitude era wrestling. just look at the roster for the attitude era Stephanie & Shane Mcmahon, Road Dogg, Billy Gunn, Ken Shamrock, Big BossMan, DDP, Chainsaw Charile, Brain Pillman, Val Venis, Gangrel, Grandmaster Sexy, Scotty 2 Hotty, Rikishi, X-Pac, The Godfather & the 3 faces of Mick Foley, Dude Love, Cactus Jack & Mankind.

ok ok jeeze, no need to yell it.

You'll have to forgive me for assuming that when people get burned out, it's because of being tired. (They actually go hand in hand)

Anyways, I've heard your explanation, and it didn't clear anything up, as it essentially means the same thing.

As for looking at Brotherhood and Revelations, I can understand a burned out opinion of Revelations, but Brotherhood was a significant improvement with quite a large amount of new features. Objectively speaking, of course.

I probably would pick XCOM: Enemy Unknown. although I'm still not sure.. It's a mix between that and Dishonored.

Dishonored and AC3 both look excellent. However the one I want to support is Dishonored for the sole reason of it actually being pretty damn unique looking.

I also do NOT like this new DLC trend that started with Borderlands 2(I love the game)where the devs sell you DLC packages before they are released and you get a discount on them. Now borderlands 1 had amazing DLC and all of it except for moxxis thunderdome were well worth 10 bucks.

However I dont know if I can get AC3 right away when they announced their DLC preorder package. AC 2 had a lot of chapters cut out of the game in odd places and they sold them back to you as DLC. It makes me wary that AC3 without DLC wont give you the FULL experience as it would if you got all the DLC, which would make the game a 100$ game just about.

Now dishonored reminds me of darksiders 2, not in gameplay but in that a bunch of people got together and made a game that THEY wanted to play and they built a game as a game and NOT a product. This is what Darksiders 2 did, and I'm seeing more and more games doing this, the sad thing is I'm not sure how well they sell because the games dont usually have mainstream appeal. I do hope however that this trend continues and I am praying that Dishonored is a huge success.

So yeah if I could get one it would be Dishonored, but I have my eyes on Hitman as I have been hankering for a good stealth game.

Yeah thats what I plan on doing. I would just rather support the underdogs and the unique IP in this case :)

Assassin's Creed 3. Been dying for it ever since it was shown.

LBP Karting. That just looks insanely fun.

My #2 is The Unfinished Swan.

The American Revolution setting in ACIII is brilliant and the diversity of the game looks amazing. But I really dislike the writing, story, and characters of the series and I'm simply losing interest in action games in general.

I would really love to hear your argument for why the story and character building is poor.

It seems Assassin's Creed has finally become popular enough to garner a hater following based on little more than the fact that it is popular.

I'm typically one of the first to accuse a title of becoming tired in annualized titles. But AC is one of the few franchises out there that continues to remain fresh and interesting.

Let's not kid ourselves here people. It's going to be fantastic. And if you skip on it, you'll miss out.

Xcom Enemy Unkown fascinates me for many reasons. Its at the top of my rental queue, but I don't know if I can wait for it, so I might just buy it Tuesday night.

Borderlands 2. 98+ hours in and I'm still enjoying myself and I haven't touched siren or gunzerker yet. Not to mention 4 level DLCs (I'm assuming because of the season pass) and the mechromancer DLC mean I'm gonna be stuck in the rabbit hole for a while

For October....hmmm...I would have to say Dishonored. ACIII and Liberation are tied for 2nd. But I am looking for a truly unique experience and story.

Ben's article on NFS Most Wanted has me thinking about that awesome race video all day so far. I haven't heard on piece of info on NFSMW Vita. I wonder how that is turning out and if it will be the same version or a nerfed version.

It's a tough time of the year because there are so many games and I have so few time to play them (Dad with 4yr old). I still have ACII and RE5 I am trying to finish. Borderlands 2 sucks right now because I cannot depend on my COOP partner at all :( Might have to bypass COOP and go for it alone. Also, Ragnarok Odyssey looks amazing! Dishonored for sure though as I have preordered it on PSN.

Hey, this is exactly my situation. Except by one, it's more likely none. New that is.

I'd get Assassin's Creed Day 1 if I played through the rest of 'em, but the first and Brotherhood I tried and for some reason gave me control problems. I wouldn't mind All Stars either, but I think I'll wait for it to go down. When I go for a day 1 purchase, I look first for a series I've played through already (none right now) and then uniqueness. So with that in mind... I'd get Mugen Souls. I'm looking more forward to games like The Last of Us, Beyond Two Souls, and The Last Guardian though :p And VERSUS if it ever gets a release date!!!! DX

Dishonored then P4: Golden. There are a ton of Vita games I actually want before console games.

Honorable mentions are Doom 3: BFG, Battle Royale, and RE6.
